The Lord placed adoption on our hearts in 2003 when we thought our family was complete, with three children. I heard an adoption testimony that shattered my heart. I began pleading with the Lord to either show us how to proceed with the urgent desire to adopt or remove it.
Needless to say, He didn't remove it, but rather revealed to us that adoption is the Gospel lived out. We were so intent on hearing directly from the Lord on the matter that we didn't share it with anyone until we were well into the process of waiting for the referral of our daughter from China.
In September 2004 we boarded a plane for China, having no clue how the Lord would rock our world. He continued to make a way for us to open our hearts and home to our precious children.
In 2022 we were definitely done! 😂 But there was a boy.
We are so excited to add to our Krew! This has been a long process with lots of unexpected turns due to a health crisis, but praise the LORD, we are back on track!
We can’t wait to introduce our newest son to you, hopefully in June! He is a busy little guy with a sweet personality and a ton of energy. He’s our lil Kaboose.
The Lord has always been faithful to provide all we need through our hard word and through generous friends. We invite you to partner with us in either:
Prayer: We treasure your prayers as we not only navigate the process, but seek all the best care for our little guy.
Giving: We have paid the majority of the costs already, but lack the last bit of funds since this process has taken longer than expected.
Thank you for journeying with us!
